      July Supporter Giveaway   07/01/2019

      It's Christmas in July! The winner of the July Supporter giveaway will receive this beautiful Barnes & Noble edition of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, as well as a special Charles Dickens tea by  theliteraryteacompany.co.uk .   I've been keeping this book a secret for so long (I couldn't wait until Christmas!) It's actually from a really lovely independent bookshop in Hay-on-Wye, the town of books. I'm so glad I finally get to show you! The picture doesn't even do it justice. A nice feature that you can't see in this image - the page edges are gold and (an extra surprise for the winner) the back is just as beautiful as the front! We also now have twice as much tea as previous giveaways!  (Thank you Literary Tea Company!)   As always, supporters are automatically entered into the giveaway and a winner will be chosen at random at the end of the month. If you want to enter this giveaway but you aren't a supporter, you can join in here https://www.patreon.com/bookclubforum .   Good luck

I'm originally from the north east of England, just upfrom Newcastle, but I've spent most of my life in Scotland - mostly in the Aberdeen area, but a short stint in Fife too.

I'm from New Zealand. I was born in Auckland in the North Island but now live in the upper part of the South Island. Contrary to popular belief, we can't walk to Australia when the tide is out. :irked:

 

This explains why you're always on so late our time :D I thought you were just a night owl! lol :lol:

Lol Charm, I quite often miss the British/Scottish/Irish contingent altogether, because they've all gone to bed.

I'm sure I've been to Joensu? Is it North or am I getting confused. Have been to and loved Helsinki and Savonlinna.

 

Joensuu is in the East and it's quite close to Savonlinna, maybe a two hour's drive away from it to the North.

Yes it is:mrgreen:

 

Wow that looks amazing! You have views like I do. We can see for miles in every direction - sometimes I feel like I'm living on top of the world! It's glorious in the summer, not so great in the winter lol
